'Riazor 75' recalls, in full colour and almost 150 pages, the history of one of the oldest pitches in Spain. It looks back on all the grounds where football was played in  A Coruña before 1944, as well as taking the reader on a journey back to the origins of how the idea of building a large stadium in the city came about, to information and news about the works and remodelling carried out in Riazor throughout 75 years. The book also dedicates some pages to those who played an important role in completing the projects such as the architects who signed the original work and both renovations, and the politicians who were decisive in setting them in motion.

All this, adorned by hundreds of photographs, maps, and plans - many of them unpublished until now – along with 13 beautiful illustrations that summarise the sports activities that took place during these 75 years:

• Official Deportivo matches

• Deportivo friendlies

• The Spanish Cup

• Spain National Team matches

• Galician National Team

• The Teresa Herrera Trophy

• Trofeo Juan Acuña

• Trofeo Conde de Fenosa

• 1982 World Cup

• Fabril Copa Da Coruña

• Athletics and Cycling.

 The book begins with letters written by the Mayor of A Coruña, Inés Rey, and Deportivo's Chairman, Paco Zas. It is completed with an extensive statistical appendix summarising all the matches played by Deportivo in Riazor, both official games and friendlies, and a timeline of events held at the venue.
